Throughout August, the British government will subsidise a 50% discount of up to £10 a head on meals and non-alcoholic drinks at participating establishments in a bid to encourage the public to eat out after months in lockdown. (Picture: Leon Neal/Getty Images)

The Eat Out to Help Out scheme was launched by Chancellor Rishi Sunak to help the UK’ s floundering hospitality industry after the nationwide lockdown left many businesses at risk of closure.

The  scheme  offers customers 50 per cent off the cost of a meal –  up  to a maximum of £10 per person – when  eating out  at a participating restaurant, café, pub or bar.

The discount isn’ t valid against booze, but there is no minimum spend and you don’ t need a voucher to use the scheme, meaning it really is as simple as showing up to the participating restaurant, ordering your favourite meal and getting a half price bill at the end.

The particular Eat Out to Help Out scheme is in full swing now having launched at the beginning of the month, but when does it end?

As the scheme will be only valid on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays, that means you have 10 different valid days before the end of the month in order to get 50% off at participating restaurants.

Plenty of time to bag a bargain meal at one of your favourite local spots.
